Castle on FIRE – France Edition

October 16 @ 4:00 pm - October 23 @ 10:00 am


The Plan

The plan is to have fun. Chat with like-minded people, scout the surrounding areas, have a beer (I’m in by that time again!) or wine (since it’s in France) and just enjoy life! And since I just happen to have soft spot for castles, it will be in a castle 😉

The Castle

The castle I have in mind is located in northern France, about an hour drive from the white cliff coastline and about 1,5 hours away from Paris. It’s about a 4 and a half hour drive from Utrecht. it’s located in a small town in a rural setting (aka: “in the middle of fucking nowhere”).

The castle is able accommodate a maximum of 16 adults (and perhaps a few small kids – say under 10). It’s got it’s own bar, pingpong table (beer pong anyone?) and a few hectares of land surrounding it.

The castle is geared towards group accommodation and primarily features shared bathrooms and restrooms.


There is no formal plan at this stage. The final plan will depend on who is coming. That being said, during the weekend the idea is to have some of the attendants present a story about themselves or a topic of their interest. We will also have a few discussion sessions with the group.

During the week I’m considering making at least two day trips to Paris and the white cliff coast line. But depending on how active the group is, we can expand the amount of activities!

There will also be time for some hiking around the area and visiting the local town(s). Personal time is also important to us, so we will make sure that this is available to all. You are free to participate with activities when and if you want. The main idea is that you have a good time.
